This is Micah Woods.
He wasn’t ever your average kid: being gay and black, and passionate about arts and creativity, his identity was always very powerful, but not always accepted by his classmates. He found a voice in music, and became particularly enamored with artists as diverse as LeAnn Rimes, Joni Mitchell, Whitney Houston, Dolly Parton,Tracy Chapman, and Lauryn Hill, only to mention a few - each and every single one of these performers have played an important role in Micah’s style and development!
His music could be described as a combination of pop, soul and country, going for an edgy, direct, and dedicated tone with plenty of character and soul. Currently based in Brooklyn, he regularly performs at some of the best independent local venues, including The Bowery Electric, Rockwood Music Hall, Pianos, The Bitter End, and more. Due to his exciting live shows, he earned positive responses and great press quotes, including The New York Post hailing him as “Brooklyn’s New Star.”
For Micah, this is only the beginning of a journey full of songs, heartfelt lyrics and honest melodies: keep listening and tune in!
Influences include (but are not limited to): John Mayer, Joni Mitchell, LeAnn Rimes, Kacey Musgraves, Tori Kelly, Solange, Patty Griffin, Frank Ocean, Dolly Parton, Shania Twain, Amos Lee, Tracy Chapman, & Ms. Lauryn Hill.
